Verdict

MILLE NAUTIQUE likes to front run, and has employed those tactics to maximum effect in the past, so Tom Bellamy is likely to stick to a similar plan as this six-year-old gelding attempts to defy a 5lb rise for his August Market Rasen success. Both track and ground are ideal, so he's a confident choice to follow up in a race which probably lacks any real strength in depth. Perhaps his former stablemate Royal Plaza is best placed to pick up the pieces for the in-form Olly Murphy should any unforeseen mishaps occur.
